Orel was born in the small town of Novy Lug on March 5th, 1989 and would grow up in a relatively well-off household. He went to college after high school and immediately began studying. During his 4 years at college, he was studying to become a teacher. He wanted to study abroad in America so he studied English as a minor, he studied political History as his major. Though, when unrest began showing it's dreary head to the lesser known towns and cities, he decided the only option was to join the Chernorussian Defense Force, and would meet action after 3 years in infantry training.
In Autumn of 2009, Orel was attached to a infantry unit in direct conflict with ChDKZ insurgents. Once he showed his knowledge of the English language, he was sent to be a liason and translator between the Marine forces operating in South Zagoria and the Chernorussian Defence Force. He served the Marines until the drawdown of NATO forces in the area.
